Is this a regression since 14.0?

The top menu is not Flash.

Summary: The top half containing flash elements of formula1.com is rendered black → Menu elements of formula1.com are not displayed, along with background
I've taken a look at builds going back to February and this is still broken, so this is definitely not a recent regression - merely something that's never worked. Don't think this should block.

CC'ing Kats and Matt who might have an idea why after the flash Into, the background and menu does not appear

Not a new regression, no need to track for 14 (since this hasn't been a major user complaint post-release).

Not really sure what's causing this. It doesn't happen if you don't have flash installed at all (the page loaded looks like the stock browser in the video and behaves normally).
